1st one is about becoming captain and leading a team through rough year even when people are quitting because of the lack of talent

2nd one is about my struggles with ADD and how I overcame it to use it to my advantage, also explaining why I had lack luster grades in freshman year (wasnt diagnosed till sophomore year) and why I couldnt take weighted courses in sophomore year

3rd one is about my mom's diagnosis of cancer and how I used her motivation to thrive on, to become a better person and work harder in my life.

4th one is about how I began creating communities on Minecraft and how that led to me creating communities within my town.

Weakness: My gpa compared to others in my school. I'm not top 10% rather I'm top 15% and I know that plays a role in admissions.
